The 2013 NFL season came to an abrupt stop for the Cincinnati Bengals, raising many questions about the future, Andy Dalton and Marvin Lewis’ job status mainly.
Since the offensive and defensive coordinators left for head coaching positions elsewhere, Marvin Lewis maintained his status as the head football coach of the Bengals.
That decision left many to question if the Bengals organization has a real desire for better results. That brings us to Andy Dalton.
Andy has had three up and down seasons as the, on field, general for the Bengals. The ups have been spectacular at time while the downs were incredibly bad too.
So the big question on the week of the big game surrounding the Bengals quarterback is, can he lead Cincinnati to a Super Bowl?
I proclaim, yes, Dalton needs and deserves the chance to prove his worth to the Bengals organization for one and possibly even two more years.
Dalton isn’t the only quarterback to have inconsistency over the first three years of a NFL career. Quarterback is the hardest job in professional sports in my opinion, and learning how to read NFL defensive schemes plus have complete confidence in yourself, on your ability to do so, takes time.
